Yes, it is an old ad. However some things are still available, including that mount. I cannot verify that it is working as per new. It is old technology dating from the early to mid-90's. It does have a large weight carrying capacity. I am representing several estates and consignments of telescope equipment (telescopes, mounts and accessories). Perhaps it will be better if you can let me know what you are looking for and we can discuss what might best fit your needs.

Personally I have several things available for sale that I will list here that somebody may be interested in -

Takahashi NJP equatorial mount with tripod and hand controller with 12v to 24v step up converter which allows for higher slew speeds. This is a high end mount with a 75 lb. payload capacity. With tripod. In like new condition...............................................................$3750.00

Antares 127 mm (5") tube assembly (f/9.4) which is a 1200 mm focal length. Has rings and a finder. Excellent condition............$350.00

Orion ST 120 (short tube) achromat tube assembly (600 mm focal length - f/5) with rings and dovetail. Excellent condition......$250.00

Celestron C-11 Schmidt-Cassegrain tube assembly with dovetail, optics good, some tube scratches and dent does not affect
performance..............................................................................................................................................$300.00

20 inch f/4.5 NightSky dobsonian newtonian telescope with a Pegasus mirror which was recoated in April 2013. Mirror is full thickness
quartz. This telescope dates from approx. 2008. It also includes a 2" FeatherTouch focuser and the Argo Navis system (encoders) as
well as dual fans for mirror cooling and 2 wheel barrel handles and wheels for easy movement........................................$4100.00



Several other things available too including guide scopes and binoculars. Just let me know what you might be looking for.

I know I'm the second person to respond to this very old ad. Couldn't resist I guess.

Can you confirm whether the LXD 750 mount is still available or did you find a buyer for it?

Thanks!
